Here’s a tidbit from Thomas Merton that takes a slow read and then another to seep into the soul so that the mind can follow the trajectory and then light up the heart. Or maybe it is the simplest circle of words he ever wrote and I’m just working too hard to keep up with him. See what you think.
Love comes out of God and gathers us to God in order to pour itself back into God through all of us and bring us all back to Him on the tide of His own infinite mercy. So we all become doors and windows through which God shines back into His own house. (New Seeds of Contemplation, p.67)
